Nice tile
The tile is shiny and bright white subway tile. I used the matching bullnose trim piece and it turned out really nice. I paired it with MSI Greecian White polished moasic marble tile 12x12 (trim around the entire bathroom), MSI Carrara Porcelain glazed 6x24 (floor), MSI Glazed Carrara Hexagon 12x12 (shower niche and shower floor). Laid the tile in a herringbone pattern on the floor and I used Dolorean Grout for the floor and shower tile and bright white grout for the walls.

I love the look of this tile! I’ve worked with it twice - once on my shower floor and again in my powder room. My only complaint is that it can be a bit difficult to work with if you don’t have a wet saw. I used tile clippers and was sometimes able to use the snap cutter, though it was extremely finicky, and didn’t always leave the cleanest edge.

We liked the final look of this product and it was easy to use/install. As other reviewer(s) noted - you want to handle a bit gently before install because if the small tile edges knock into each other, you may find minor chips on the edges start to form (but they become fairly negligible once you grout). We chose a "frost" colored grout that was a light scale gray and it worked well with the finished product in our opinion. I think a medium gray or light charcoal grout would work fine as well depending on the look you are going for - the "veining" in the tile allows it to work with different white/gray scales. Posting a picture of what it looks like versus what it looks like near white cabinets (which still need a good wipe down in final clean up).

I like the tile. My only reservation is that in the box there are different amounts of mixed tiles but one tile in the box is almost all dark tiles and it stands out too much with the other tiles.

I was ready to go real marble until I saw that maintenance is a pain to maintain. Glad I was able to find this porcelain tile product and cheaper than marble. I was concerned with the few chips I saw at the edges others mentioned but once our installer put it in, not an issue. Beautiful, love the look and color! Worth the wait as it comes back into stock, we paired with the platinum grout.
